Quick Switcher text input loses focus

I searched around and couldn’t find the cause of this. I’m really not sure what is going on, as I haven’t used Quick Switcher before today, so I’m not sure if this should be filed as a bug, or if there is some clash with some other setting. Looking for guidance so I can file a proper issue ticket if that is the case.

As it stands, Quick Switcher for creating new notes behaves strangely.

As an example, if I want to create a new note under /people/, called foo, I would begin typing /people/, and once that second directory delimiter is typed, the very next character typed goes through to the tab under the floating Quick Switcher window, thus editing the note with a stray character. Oh dear, I had so many stray characters all over various notes before I realized the issue. It took me a long time to fix it all.

Here is a GIF animation of what I am seeing.

I thought perhaps some plugin was conflicting, but I tried disabling them and restarting Obsidian to no avail. I was especially suspicious of the Slash command core plugin. But, nope. Nothing I do will fix this.

I was just checking out the Quick Switcher plugin for the first time to see if it would save me time. It actually does the opposite right now, so I don’t want use it :frowning:

You should provide information about the Obsidian version and the operating system you use. I cannot reproduce what you describe using Obsidian 1.5.12 on Linux Fedora 39.

I apologize. I am running Obsidian 1.5.12 on Arch Linux, using the official package in their repositories. This also occurred on 1.5.11 as well, as I just updated today.

I found the problem, after revisiting all my steps for what must have been many times.

The Typing Assistant community plugin clashes with Quick Switcher core plugin.

Solution: Disable Typing Assistant.
